Travel to Dalhousie
Dalhousie is a quiet hill station with a sense of enchantment that spreads over five low-level hills at the western edge of the Dhauladhar range just east of the Ravi River. Named after a former British governor-general it retains a whiff of colonial air and some charming architecture.
The pine covered slopes are intersected with paths and treks that are ideal for short undemanding walks. Around half a kilometre away from the Subhash Baoli, Jandhri Ghat enfolds an elegant palace in the midst of tall pine trees.Chamba's erstwhile rulers governed from here till the advent of Lord Dalhousie.
Less than 5 kms from the town centre the Bakrota hills frame a breathtaking view of the snow-clad peaks. On the way to Panjpulla at an altitude of 2,036 metres these seven springs are reputed to have great therapeutic value as they contain mica with medicinal properties. The Catholic Church of St Francis is located here and looks magnificent.
